Turkish NGOs-initiated hospital underway in Uganda

Date posted: March 22, 2013

A new hospital, 33-bed capacity hospital in service of 300 daily, jointly by South East International Health Federation (GUSAF), Uganda Nile Foundation and Kimse Yok Mu, is currently under construction in Uganda.

A conference titled “Multifaceted Human Nature and Its Relation with Health” was held to commemorate Medicine Festival on March 14 with various health professionals and provincial officials in the province Malatya, Turkey.

In his speech, a GUSAF member urologist Dr. Necdet Kizilkaya announced that a 33-bed hospital financed by Turkish NGOs is under construction in Jinja, in the eastern African country Uganda. Kizilkaya revealed that 13 departments staffed by 50 professionals will be available at the hospital. Kizilkaya briefed on the project saying “Just like in any other African country, medication, doctors and supporting healthcare staff are extremely needed in Uganda too. We, as a team of doctors, have been to Republic of Democratic Congo for a medical screening earlier in 2007. We split into two groups one of which, including me, went to Kasai state. It was a disease-ridden and seriously disadvantaged region. We unexpectedly met an American woman surgeon there. We had assumed we were the first white men to provide medical service to the region. Now we are building a 33 bed hospital on 21.000 ft² area. It will be serving with 13 departments staffed by 50 professionals. The hospital will offer medical care in departments including internal medicine, pediatrics, gynecology, general surgery, urology and ophthalmology. It will be equipped with two operating theatres, a delivery room, 26-bed patient service, 4-bed emergency, labs, and radiology and pharmacy services. The hospital, serving daily to about 500 patients, will be initially operated by volunteer doctors and supporting health professionals. The construction has been largely completed and the hospital is scheduled to be launched this year. The hospital initiated as a part of the project will contribute considerably to healthcare system of Jinja.”
